St Trinians and Lauren St John collide in this hilarious and thrilling bestselling adventure from Natasha Farrant!

When Alice Mistlethwaite is shipped off to boarding school in Scotland it's nothing like she imagines. Run by the mysterious Major, there are no punishments and the students are more likely to be taught about body painting or extreme survival than maths or English!
Then Alice's dad goes missing and she must run away to find him. Can she persuade her new friends to help?
So begins an epic quest across wild Scottish highlands and islands, where friendships will be made and broken, lies will be untangled and the children will face danger and excitement at every turn . . .
Both hilarious and heartfelt, this is the classic adventure story brought bang up to date, and told in Natasha's inimitable voice.
'Thrilling adventure.' The Times
'This wise and touching novel has originality and a fresh voice.' Sunday Times
'A gripping adventure . . . I stayed up all night reading it!' Emma Carroll, author of Letters from the Lighthouse
